    Default AOS/Minnesota Show/Sale

    Well, it's official. I exceeded my budget of $100 (only by 20 dollars). But, I ended up with 6 plants and a 7th I bought for a friend for doing some work for me. So, if I hadn't bought the gift, I was about on target. I unfortunately didn't end up with anything I went looking for! Here they are:

    Encyclia tampense
    Oncidium lanceanum
    Encyclia prismatocarpa
    Encyclia alata
    Dendrobrium wassellii
    Cleisostoma birmanicum

    Attached are a few photos of some highlights of the show. I took 24 photos in all, and if anyone would like to see them all, I have them on a photo website.

    Nice. It looks like you came away with a good haul. I didn't need the temptation, so I didn't make it.

    There's still time!! You really should check out the displays, even if you're not in the market for additions to your collection. The show is open all w/e (until 5 pm on Sunday).

    i'm heading out to bloomington for the show tomorrow morning... I'm sure that the crowds were lighter today but couldn't make it with work. I'm sure i'll be drooling and wishing i had a larger growing area!

    You evil, evil people

    Nope, not going. I have lots and lots of work to do this weekend. I really don't like flower shows of any kind and also hate, hate, hate to shop for anything.

    I am at peace.
